OK, really I’ve got mail but I’m going to share it with you so it’s almost like you’ve got mail.  Exciting right?  Well, it only gets better…

I’m not a big fan of the kitchen gadget….you know that thing that you must have (you know this because the infomercial says so).  It only does one thing, but does it so well as to make your life immensely easier (you know this because the infomercial says so).  It will leave you with extra time, clean hands, a handsome husband and perfect kids (you know this….) well you get the picture.  Every once in a while I get suckered in...
